Society places great value on health and wellness. The College of
Health Professions accepts as its philosophical foundation the belief
in the worth and dignity of individuals and their right to fulfill
their potential in life. Preservation or restoration of the individual's
dignity through health then becomes the basic tenet of the programs
in the college.
Programs in the College of Health Professions promote the attainment of the highest level of wellness possible
in the patients and clients who are served. Graduates of the college are committed
to service to the public in maintaining wellness and to those whose well being
is threatened or altered by illness, injury, or natural processes. The college
offers programs at both the undergraduate and graduate level that are designed
to prepare professionals to assume roles in a variety of clinical, teaching
and community settings.
